no need to 😥 you are now on mission EAT…. I had that drama even up to 38weeks, i was told to put my feet up and get the baby fat for delivery. In 2weeks he went from 5lb to 6lb 14oz ~ 2.7kg, easier pushing process is what i was consoling myself with 🙂
How much weight is the doc looking at? Is there any suspect for this i.e. drugs you may be taking? Are you still having difficulties eating? If not, ensure you have 3-5 meals a day even if in small portions. Chocolates, biscuits and ice creams works also. If like me, i find out i eat better at work so if you are home you may need to consciously set timers or reminders to nibble on things. Are you allowed to take stuff like Complan? I had to take that also and my hot chocolate twice a day, that you can take 3-4 times a day. In all, we also do not want gestational diabetes so i trust you to be cautious.
Please let’s rejoice, that is a small issue….All other is well, wishing you good luck with the lungs specialist..August 4, 2017 at 10:01 am #36640
2017 is the year for boys. Thank God, you have started eating oh @pearl. Keep it up and in two weeks time, there should be some changes.
And that boy crying about having another girl is not serious oh… years down the line, he can play “protector.’
Bos @bosa, honestly, some things can be easy without the grandma’s interference sometimes… 🙂 🙂 I had better keep this your contribution for when someone needs it.August 4, 2017 at 2:55 pm #36657
HUGE CONGRATS, darling @pearl. This is AWESOME
And yes o! Like @bosa said, you are on Project EAT now! You already started good with the eba and ice-cream. Keep going hun .
And so sorry about the error notice. Honestly, the IT issues with this site don tire me. Thankfully, I think we’ve had less in the last few weeks. Kombo (our IT guy) and I just need to take a look at this latest one.August 7, 2017 at 8:40 am #36743

I don’t understand again, this issues with posting @pearl. Sorry dear.
You have already started well with this weight gain but you can do better oh. Even if all you take is fruit or snack, please eat something. Well until next appointment, we may know the reason you and baby are underweight.
And why are you excited the grandmas are not coming for Omugwo So, you’re going to be doing this all by yourself? Well, you’re a strong mama and you will do just fine.August 7, 2017 at 11:07 am #36754
”… but you can do better oh.” @oluwakemine.
Ko ma easy ke but will try. 🙁
Abeg! leave those grandmas to take care of their personal biz. I don’t want their wahala and dictates. DH will not even gree, when the time is right they will see their grandson; but to come…mba
DH will be like imagine you step out and on returning you see your son now has tribal marks courtesy grandma
Jokes aside, even if they lived next door. Ko possible, ko le werk.August 7, 2017 at 11:30 am #36756
Now, I remember, even before now, you have said your husband won’t agree. Okay oh
Lol @DH will be like imagine you step out and on returning you see your son now has tribal marks courtesy grandma. Heads will roll if anyone tries that with me.
Regarding food , you just have to keep trying @pearlAugust 7, 2017 at 1:33 pm #36761
@pearl hun, ah sterilizer wasn’t on that list before??? VERY IMPORTANT oh! Yes, hot water can do the trick, but if you’re anal like me, nothing quite like the enhanced cleaning and preservation from a sterilizer oh.
Hmmmm…my dear, babies are hard work oh. But I know you’re up to the task. As for me, I would have lost my mind if my Mom hadn’t been there. Will you be getting any help, say a nanny or something?
As for the food, just keep trying hun. Don’t force yourself. Do your best and leave the rest. The weight will come slowly. Not the one you will eat yourself into sickness. Small small abeg.August 7, 2017 at 2:18 pm #36762
As for help, nanny or something…DH is yet to recover from ptsd after an awful event with domestic staff. Neither home nor abroad can they be trusted, they are all the same everywhere; and with the rate of unpleasant experiences even after trying to give some a second chance, I would say NO.
I will try my best regarding food and hoping my best is best enough.August 7, 2017 at 2:38 pm #36764
#strongmama. Pearl @pearl, we may not be able to help physically but we have your back here. #babyloadingAugust 7, 2017 at 2:56 pm #36768August 8, 2017 at 10:37 am #36820
@pearl some people do hot water and sterilizing tablet/liquid like Milton (like the old days) but the smell of Milton i can’t stand.
On the mamas, you had mentioned earlier so not surprised. Depending on your location, I know in the UK, you get midwife home visits so they could help with tips. But like i said in that earlier post, we will all figure it out if we have no choice. You will be fine, you just need to truly learn to sleep as the baby sleeps. I made use of my baby carrier so much, sometimes left him in the swing when i had to cook or do laundry. By the time my mom arrived he was 3 weeks old and independent. I felt like she was dulling me because she had started to spoil him with too much carrying and her lengthy bath routine was tiring. I begged her to allow me do my less than 5 mins in and out, thankfully dad was around so her attention was quite divided. I guess i wouldn’t have known different if she was there from day 1.
Re steroids, i suspect that might be the culprit. Let’s see what your doc says. During my pregnancy, i was lucky my asthma/allergies behaved well so i was gradually weaned off corticosteroids. Doc claimed it restricts growth but from my research i read it could cause weight gain and increased appetite (not like that ever happened). Being a picky eater is the main issue i think, just eat what you love for now. If you love biscuits, have packs of them daily…..Do you like avocados and bananas? I still remember your post on bananas, in fact when i see bananas i remember @pearl and limit myself to 1-2 bananas a day oh
#ProjectEat and ignore the scale for now, that will only make you quite anxious.
